Good afternoon and a Happy Easter to all… We provide the following update on this Sunday. The improvement of patients on the second floor referenced during yesterday’s update continues through today.
Today is a new day at Riverbend, and we are continuing to see improvement in our COVID-19 experience. It is with optimism and gratitude that we share the following update with you: We are seeing more and more encouraging results with our COVID-19 positive residents.
We understand and appreciate that there have been questions regarding the current status of the COVID-19 situation at Riverbend Post Acute. We have decided that we will communicate more globally (like we are doing here) on a daily basis, going forward. This allows us to both share what we are seeing and experiencing in the moment in a more streamlined manner, while allowing us to remain focused on the continued delivery of care and treatment to our patients without distraction or interruption.

I am pleased to report that we are seeing improvements in several of these patients, and so appreciate our talented Facility team for their focused delivery of care.

Please know that we are all fully engaged in taking action to minimize the possible exposure associated with this virus. We thank you for your continuing confidence, and for helping us in our attempts to keep our residents and staff safe.
